One of the most intriguing things about this universe is the symmetry that one finds everywhere. It is just pervaded by symmetry. God must be a lover of symmetry. The human body is symmetric. So are the bodies of all mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects, etc.. All that walks, crawls or swims. Consider all the parts of the bodies of all these creatures --- hands, feet, eyes, ears, nose, internal organs --- and see all the intriguing symmetry. Consider the forms of all the plants, grasses and herbs of the field; of the trees, bushes and shrubs of the forest. See the intriguing symmetry in their general shapes. And look at the symmetry in their parts. See the symmetry of their leaves, their flowers, stems and root systems. All living things that God has made are characterized by an intriguing amount of symmetry. And one can also find symmetry outside the living things. Consider the many varied types of crystals in the mineral world. Consider the raindrops. Consider the snowflakes. Consider the heavenly bodies --- the sun, moon, stars, and planets (they are spherical). Consider their motions (ellipses). Symmetry everywhere. Is there some hidden meaning in all this symmetry? Some deep, mystical, spiritual meaning? To me it is all the unique mark, the signature, the fingerprint of the Most High God, Lord of the Universe. So also are all the intricate and remarkable processes and mechanisms of growth, reproduction, etc. that govern living things; and all the intriguing physical laws that govern everything.
